    This is a 70-minute lecture on the effects of stress on humans, from the
    cellular, through the individual, to the social level. This is as close to
    a holistic approach to stress as anything I’ve ever seen.

    Thanks to Mary Ching for sharing this.

    “Thank you, Robert, that was just suburb!” It really is superb. I have
    listened to many hours of his talks, and every new one is a fresh big treat.

    WTF. wow. speechless at this lecture. mind blowing stuff. this man clearly
    knows his shit, not that i know his shit, as it is totally over my head,
    but im giving him the benefit of the doubt that he has “read a few
    books”(to say the least) in his time about this subject. regardless its
    absolutely very interesting(also dam boring). but good on you sapolsky ,
    keep up the good work.

    1 What is your evidence for having had liver failure? clay colored stool,
    dark brown urine-did not go to the Dr, incapacitated for 36 hours. no alc
    or drugs. No food intake…some water but, tap horrid, hence soda. I was
    later diagnosed with cirrhosis-low platelet count and edema. 15 yrs after
    any alc consumption Edema-spironolactone Side Effects~Gynecomastia is
    enlargement of the glandular tissue of the male breast. Which should be
    discontinued @ such signs, Dr. breezed by my complaints.

    My point; Monsanto profits, has the upper hand on any info disclosed. As
    does the vaccine distributors, why I mentioned-NEW anthrax testing “A
    presidential ethics panel has opened the door to testing an anthrax vaccine
    on children as young as infants”Ruters….recent article/action-rational? I
    think not. No, no I wish you would chk Pub Med, I seriously see hundreds or
    thousands~many with w/negative slant. Access to info w/o subscription-did
    not look close. Time spent on puter-I should have.

    Aspartame being the end product, In 1984 Monsanto purchased Searl chemical
    company, they held patent to aspartame. The FDA banned the substance, yet
    was a turned around. Company head Donald Rumsfeld….this is what I am
    saying, that is just too weird. And Monsanto has always been liked to the
    defense dept making chemical weapons? Now in charge of food supply. I
    certainly am not a anti capitalist type, monopoly fears perhaps-hampering
    free markets. But mainly, all the affiliation with FDA.

    I was away from home, rare do I drink anything but, water or tea. Stevia
    yes. Powder added as mostly rolled oat, protein powder. Which I have not
    chk GI of? hmmm. And yes, barley, brown rice & various-cereal and more of a
    pilaf with veg/fish/chicken or beans. Bulk of diet. Looking for a good
    source of red meat, store quality has dropped. List: Elk and/or beef friend
    w/farm and hunts. Farm raised chicken becoming hard to find. aarrgg
    Question-rolled oats/barly vs whole grains? GI

    Few Westernized humans are likely to die of scarlet fever, malaria or
    malnutrition. Instead, we live well enough and long enough to succumb to
    the diseases of slow degeneration. It is increasingly recognized that a
    large percentage of such diseases can be caused by or worsened by stress.
    This lecture approaches the subject of stress and health from two very
    different perspectives.

    Unhealthy stress is not only a killer, it can cause chronic long term
    health problems on a life long basis, but an understanding of it can help
    to reduce it to a safe level. For an understanding from a physics point of
